Best chokes for Hevi waterfowlloads???

Postby gatrkyhntr70 » Sat Aug 01, 2009 1:52 pm

My son and I are going to give duck hunting atry this year. I have an 870 3" 28"bbl. I bought a mod. Kicks High flyer for it.
My son has a youth 20Ga.
Can I have some choke load suggestions for 12 & 20Ga. hunting wood ducks, most likely in timber.

i have several kicks chokes and they work very well, for your son, if the ducks are giong to be
within 35 yrds, a kicks improved cylinder, or any improved cylinder will work fine, there are several
choke manufacturers that make great chokes, kicks,briley,carlson,trulock,patternmaster, are all good
performing chokes, i would reccomend an extended choke, they seem to pattern more consistant.
good luck.

I use a Patternmaster for waterfowl and turkeys and have no complaints.

Wad Wizard tubes are all I have run in my guns for about 5 years now. Great tubes...great patterns...and even better people to work with!!! I believe they still have the 30 day money back gurantee as well!!! Give Lorie Walker a shout at Wad Wizard...tell her I sent ya! She'll take care of you!!!!

I use a patternmaster extended choke for ducks geese and turkey. For ducks and geese I like Hevi shot #2 for turkey you cant beat Hevi 13. I find in high wind situations the #2 shot dosn't "drift" as mych as smaller shot.

Indian Creek-Black Diamond.
Kicks-High Flyer.
Carlson-Hevi-Shot choke tubes.
Cabela's-Choke tubes for Hevi-Shot.
Briley-Waterfowl choke tubes.
PatternMaster-Go with the Black color choke tubes over the silver.
Browning-Grand Passage Choke tubes.

These choke tubes are the top of line for use with all Hevi-Shot waterfowl loads.
Note: PatternMaster Full & Extended Choke tubes pattern better with size BB & larger.

I have had great success with Wad Wizard Supreme and Swat, go out and pattern your gun and you will be surprised with the outcome.

I tested this choke,shooting "B" and "T" (dead coyote) loads,patterns great beyond 50yds,horse apiece compared to my briley exr ext-ported choke,but take a look.

Dead Coyote Choke Tube (carlson chokes)
For use with Hevi-Shot, Bismuth or lead, this high performance choke tube has been specifically designed for the coyote hunter to deliver devastating downrange patterns upwards of 70 yards when shooting larger shot sizes. Produces very dense patterns when ultilizing T and Buckshot loads. Great for waterfowl and predator hunting.

I shoot a Factory Mod in my Browning for everything but Turkeys.

My son uses a Factory IC in his SX2 and does just as good as I do with the Mod.

I'd go with IC in the 20 GA, Hevi #6s.
